College lecturers

Why do college lecturers need to register with GTC Scotland?

In March 2018 Colleges Scotland Employers Association and the EIS – Further Education Lecturers’ Association (EIS-FELA) agreed that mandatory registration was part of the outcome of national bargaining (NJNC Circular 03/18). Registration with GTC Scotland now forms part of the agreed national terms and conditions of employment for all college lecturers under the new harmonisation arrangements.

In December 2018, a College Lecturer Registration Roundtable, attended by GTC Scotland, EIS-FELA, Colleges Scotland and the Scottish Government, committed to working together to register college lecturers with GTC Scotland.

The buttons below will take you to our registration section and information on how to apply for registration with GTC Scotland.

Please note: Our Council has approved a new Standard for Provisional Registration (Lecturers in Scotland’s Colleges). This standard will provide a transitional route to registration for college lectures who do not yet hold a GTC Scotland-recognised teaching qualification. This route will launch in April.
